Unbroken Chain


This recording, until now, was coveted by only 4 tapers that I know of.
It was recorded using a portable boom box with a FM radio. The band was
using a low frequency FM signal to power the monitors. What we have here is
Phil's signal intercepted by our Boom box! It was then mastered to DAT.
Enjoy this rare treat, take notice of the banter between band members and
sound people. It will give you a glimps of the dynamics of the worlds
greatest band!

Track 1-10 are all different takes of Unbroken Chain. It was debuted that
very night for the first time ever!
